A new PBS documentary focuses on Italian Americans in New York and New Jersey. Among those featured, Bridgeport Bishop Frank Caggiano, a Brooklyn native, and John Heyer, a parishioner at Sacred Hearts and St. Stephen Church in Carroll Gardens. That’s where Currents correspondent Katie Breidenbach visited ahead of the documentaries airing.
